Student housing a top priority for Southeast New Mexico College

Encinitas News Avatar
New Mexico State University is a two-year community college that serves Eddy County.

Southeast New Mexico College (SENMC) aimed to provide affordable housing for its students in Carlsbad.

New Mexico State University (NMSU) Carlsbad Interim President Dr. Andrew Nwanne said building a dorm would be one of the college’s top priorities after its transition.

Efforts to expand the campus and add housing have gone largely ignored according to a column written by the vice-chair of the mayor’s Task Force on Higher Education for the Carlsbad Current-Argus John Heaton.  

The transition of NMSU Carlsbad to SENMC began on July 1 after a push to regain community control of the college. 

Housing was a long-held issue in Eddy County and Carlsbad as oil and gas industry workers flocked to the area. Nwanne said staff had issues finding affordable homes, especially during the peak period of the oil boom.
